Question about Kenmore 20.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator
Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge also small amount of ice build up in back of freezer Dripping water from freezer on to top shelf and freezing Water drips down into the refrigerator section and sometimes forms ice. Is the following model one that needs an after market heat strip? Model#70172990. Please advise if this model needs the after market strip or if something else will work? water drips onto top shelf of refrigerator from freezer, ice forms on bottom of freezer shelf and seems to not be draining.
The defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.
